, mitt romney is worse." meaning, the position that romney had on those issues was either as bad as or worse than the one that president obama had. in one sense that was irrelevant rid if you're a citizen, he told the people to exercise power accountable. the fact that romney is worse does not meet that obligation. from an election perspective, it is a simple minded and incomplete way of looking at things. the question is not, is mitt romney positive view on any particular issue or are the the positions of the republicans worse, it is, what can each candidate accomplished in their particular field? there is the cliche about only richard nixon could have established relationships with communist china because only a republican could do it. i think only a democratic president could have assassinated u.s. citizens, proceed to whistleblowers -- bush official said there's a lot of stuff we wanted to do but knew we could not do because had we tried, there would be an enormous storm from democrats, the media, and we just could not do it. obama can do because he brings progressives and de

, but then he claims they didn't lose the election on budget issues. congressman ryan is wrong. in exit polls 60% favor tax rates increasing either for everyone or for those making more than $250,000 a year. as for urban areas? romney and ryan lost. there is an obvious connection to the republican policy. african-american, latino, young voters, they simply do not buy ryan's approach, and that is every man for himself. let's turn to ohio state senator nina turner. senator, good to have you with us tonight. i think this is important because this is an admission that their voter suppression did not work, and turnout does work. all of the talk before the election did connect with people. information is power. motivation is what makes it happen. ryan doesn't see a connection between his policy proposals and his ticket's -- and the gop ticket defeat. what do you make of that? >> well, i have two words for congressman ryan and the other gop who are out of touch with this. seek help. the fact they don't understand that urban folks, i.e., factory workers, auto workers, teachers, police officers, nurses,

in undecided by in particular on the presidency, by making mitt romney questionable in their mind on our set of issues. might not be able to totally close the deal with them, but could keep the elevator doors, you know, hold it open until we could see that the economy starts to come up, see the ext pat's campaign do that closing argument that really did finally tip them over. i think that was the role that we played in there with a lot of these independent women. just kept them from out of frustration going to your point. i'm frustrated, i don't know about the future, i'm just going to go for change. no, wait, got to learn more about this guy. >> is there a difference in the way you talk to voters if you're trying to get them to vote for president obama versus trying to get them to vote for a woman running for the senate or the house? i mean, you were kind of in the middle of. that both of you were at the cross section of that in a lot of ways. all of you women's vote was at the cross section of that. >> who should start?

, and then the other big issue was obama's advertising in july, may through july, which nobody responded to which, in my view, defined romney in very negative terms. >> it did, and as i said earlier, once you are defined, it's tough to unravel that. to the point, it probably did make a big difference because if the super pacs had not been out there on the republican side, the others would have been out there anyway, and so you would have seen a country that's not so evenly divided probably because both turnout in advertising glairs would have met larger margins for them. in the end, mitt romney lost, yes, but that doesn't mean it didn't make a difference. i will say that when you can want coordinate between a campaign and someone else helping you, sometimes the ads are less helpful. [laughter] some adds good, others not. some were off message, you know, and in your business, think about it with marketing efforts, if you had to have a marketing team within your business, but also an outside marketing team, you have no control over and couldn't communicate with, you know, how would you feel about y

some room to think about these issues in a different way, but also some pretty good things that fall into place on the other side of the fiscal cliff. for example, people were talking in the campaign, you're both romney and sometimes obama has talked about some kind of overall deductions. guess what? we had something, roughly so much that mostly for high income earners, those have been out of that effect since the bush tax cuts. they would come back into effect on the other side of the fiscal cliff. not a bad thing. capital gains tax rate goes up from 50% were it is encouraging album and just if you look at the wrong attacks occurred, for example, all the loophole, hedge fund pupils from all those are products of such a low capital gains rate and incentives to define incomes are so high, capital gains rate goes up to 20%. that should be at the same level of other incomes but that's progress. dividend rate goes up to the level of normal income. those are good things on the other side of the fiscal cliff. there are things that you would want to change. you would want to restore some of

of the super pac money, channeling it into other things. the other issue was obama's advertising. and they made which nobody responded to it. >> it probably did it a difference because >> in the end, mitt romney loss but it does not mean it did not make a difference. many cannot afford a petition campaign and someone else helping in, sometimes they ads are less helpful. some of the market, some of them or not. some of them were off message. with your business and marketing efforts. if you have to of a marketing team within your business but also an outside marketing team, how would you feel about your results? probably not very good. you want to target it and develop your message appropriately. i am not saying it was not without some impact. i think it had a lot of impact. but it would have been much more impact so if it were run through the campaign. >> i am being told that is the end of the session. we are going to have dessert and coffee downstairs where we have been having the meetings right outside the general session and the public again at 2:30. i want to thank senator portman for coming

was the irrespective of who won was dealing with the fiscal cliff. if you were a romney fan and thought he would win and it would a pro-business view and after that we would settle down to say we still have this big issue december 31st. i think the winner wasn't as important. the process and i heard your prior interview being discussed is can they find that compromise and can the president lead and be able to take on both sides of the argument at the extremes. there's probably 80% agreement. it's the last 10% on either side that will be challenging. >> investors are paid to take risk. you have to come to a view as to what the likelihood is that you go off the cliff and what implications would be. it's perfectly logical to sit there and say this is important news and we follow it bit by bit, it's logical to sit at home and say i believe they will do a deal. i stay fully invested in the stock market. >> you may hedge the potential for the nasty outcome to occur. i don't know what statistical probability is. nobody knows that number. you should be invested. the question is should you have this kind of

. that was a basic issue. the president, when he stood up for the auto industry, essentially answered your collar pulled a question about the importance of manufacturing -- collar's question about the importance of manufacturing. one governor romney, forget red line, "led detroit go bankrupt -- forget the headline, "led detroit go bankrupt" his position would have lost hundreds of thousands of jobs, including in pennsylvania. one of the questions is do you stand up for manufacturing in this country, made in america, where do you not? when reelecting a president, the people said stand up for manufacturing, for opposing steps that allow companies to shift jobs overseas without reason. it was another issue in this campaign, and we need to come in the coming session, stand up for manufacturing. we have to do that, and the president has a number of programs that will support that, help manufacturing in this country. i am all for it. we need to do more. host: congressman sander levin, 12resented michigan's district. coming up next in the cannon rotunda, we'll be joined by congressman steven latourette

medicaid tax. before i let you go, mitt romney took a lot of criticism during the debate. he tried with candy crowley, he then avoided it like the third rail. the white house press corps is not as likely to back up of that issue today. it will be interesting to see the president go one-on-one with these reporters on an issue that he has had say very little about. >> there are so many questions that have never been answered like did you know there were warnings, including from the ambassador about the lack of security. these questions about the stories and the timeline afterwards. there is a lot in a simple question. what did you know in august and were you aware that there were these records? a lot of music on these very key issues. megyn: and his white house spokesperson, no evidence that this attack was preplanned at a time when now we know the white house had been told something very different. there was plenty of evidence. we will watch and see. chris wallace, thank you, sir. we will see you on sunday. after this news conference today, there is a high-stakes meeting at the whit
